Swiss National Dish: Raclette

Raclette is both the name for the traditional Swiss Cheese dish as well as the name for the Swiss cheese. Raclette is a fat, tasty, semi-hard cheese made from raw or pasteurized milk the and it differentiates itself by its excellent melting ability.

For the Swiss national dish, Raclette cheese is placed in front of glowing fire coals, after which the softened and bubbling cheese is scraped from the cheese wheel on to a plate for serving.

Raclette is a social meal to be enjoyed with friends and family and is traditionally served with small potatoes, pickles and various pickled vegetables such as onions and corn. Season with some Paprika and Pepper and you’re good to go!
